Prepare ingredients for the cake layers.
This cake dough is made on a steam bath. Preheat water and place a bowl on top of the boiling water, making sure that the bowl doesn't melt. Combine together sugar, egg, butter, honey and milk. Cook until ingredients double in volume.
Stir in cacao slowly, followed by baking soda.
In small parts keep on adding flour to the mixture. At first use a whisk and as the dough becomes thicker, use a spatula. At first, dough may still be soft, but as it gets colder, it will get harder.
Divide dough into 11 equal in size pieces.
On a floured surface, roll out each piece into your preferred size. Measure it using a plate or a lid, to make it a consistent size. Don't cut the dough yet, wait until it bakes.
Bake at 350F for about 5-8 minutes, depending on your oven. Remove from the oven, place your measuring circle on top and cut out the edges. Remove it form the sheet onto a cooling rack. Repeat the steps until you are all done with the dough.
